The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 from Valiant Entertainment. James Asmus writes and Tom Fowler draws.

Quantum and Woody are the newest super-team on the scene, but the scene isn’t too sure about them at this point. So we hearken back to their origin (not really all that long ago) and meet Woody and Eric, adoptive brothers who couldn’t be less alike. Eric is military and the responsible one, Woody the adopted screw-off. But when they discover what scientist Dad really did for a living, things take a major turn.

These characters are going to be a great deal of fun to read. The banter between them is really sharp, and their love-hate relationship is shown very effectively in this first issue. Accidental superheroes through super-science can also be a fun origin, though often a lot rests on the villains in such stories to make them work. We don’t meet villains here, but these heroes are off to a good, if chaotic, start.

I see a lot of potential in this book, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the team takes it. Eric and Woody are very likeable, and that’s a good start to a super-buddy-cop series.

QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 is available now at your LCS or online at valiantuniverse.com.
